Gerardo
Gerardo is 31 years old and he is a very hardworking and responsible young man; he pays rent for the house where he lives with his wife, his parents and his siblings. Gerardo runs a gym, a family activity that has been in business for 5 years, and he gives spinning classes to his customers. At first he had lot of work to do and did not have time to also manage the gym, but he thanks God because now he has enough time and desire to contribute to his gym so that it can keep on growing and improving. It was his mother who took the initiative to open an activity of their own, in order to earn a living, and at first there was another person in charge of this small activity; but then Gerardo started to get involved little by little, and now it's him who directs the gym. Gerardo hopes to keep on progressing, and to implement and improve the infrastructure of the gym in order to give a better service to his customers. This is the first loan he is requesting to Kiva, and he feels deeply grateful for the economic support he has received, because this will grant him the working capital he needs to buy machines and to improve the infrastructure of his working space. The 3000 PEN loan he is requesting will be used to buy exercise machines and gymnastic tools.
